Time for the Annual Salon des Artistes once again!

Yikes!  The annual Salon des Artistes is Sunday, December 6th (212 Washington St. NE, Albuquerque, New Mexico, in the Nob Hill neighborhood, from 9-4).

This is our official invitation, by creator of exquisite paperie, Bea Lombard.  We are so lucky to have her in our coterie!

So it is the season for blingy things:

like necklace #139, vintage rhinestones and vintage glass on the Japanese chirimen polyester bias tape.  (This one is at Mariposa Gallery in Albuquerque);

and necklace #140, an old rhinestone buckle fragment and vintage rhinestone buttons;

and necklace #137 - vintage rhinestones on the chirimen bias tape (this one is about to leave me);

and necklace #138, a Deco vintage buckle fragment with pewter-tone vintage rhinestone buttons and vintage pallettes.

Fun with  metal and plastics, too:

necklace 142 has a contemporary metal and enamel button in the center and vintage metal buttons - including those stylized Art Nouveau roses, around it (on chirimen polyester bias tape);

and necklace #143 is vintage green Bakelite (on chirimen polyester bias tape).

See you at the Salon!
